Majority Whip Sen. Durbin on bringing our troops in Afghanistan home, anxiety fueling gas prices

Majority Whip Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) joins Soledad in-studio this morning, talking about the recent surge in violence in Afghanistan. He says the only course of action at this point is to bring our troops home, sooner the better.

Soledad also asks him about surging gas prices. Durbin claims it's not due to market forces, since there is an adequate supply of oil available. Rather he says the rising prices are due to uncertainty in the Middle East.
